Determine why you’re qualified

“Turning a hobby into a career requires asking yourself what makes you qualified to turn this idea into a business,” says Deborah Sweeney, CEO of, who has worked with clients who want to monetize their hobbies.

Sweeney recommends asking yourself two questions:

  • How do I bring a unique perspective to the table that interests audiences?
  • How have I established myself as an emerging expert in this industry?

“You should be able to claim a space as a thought leader, an influencer or a researcher within that hobby’s industry to stand out and show that you are seriously invested.” Sweeney says.
